The Minecraft ocelot is based on real-life ocelots. They have yellow pelts with black spots which is very similar to the real animal. They also have green eyes. The female is bigger than the male in real life.
Ocelots are very shy and agile. If a player hits or surprises an ocelot, it will sprint away. Like wolves hunting sheep, ocelots will pounce on unsuspecting chickens after sneaking towards it. If one approaches an ocelot too quickly or look around too quickly, then any nearby ocelots will run away. A player cannot catch one by chasing it. If players stand still while holding Raw Fish, nearby ocelots will slowly walk towards a player because they want the fish.
Players will need to be holding raw fish toward an ocelot without looking around or moving until the ocelot comes close to a player where it will stop right at a player's feet. When this happens, a player must feed the ocelot the raw fish by right-clicking on the ocelot. Once tamed, ocelots will turn into a domestic cat and their texture will change to become either a tabby, a tuxedo-style, or a Siamese cat style.
- Usually it will stare at a player for a very long time before tamed. (Still, don't move around.)
- A player cannot tame an ocelot if the fish was fed to it by chasing, cornering, or trapping it even if the ocelot can eat it this way.
- Cooked fish cannot tame an ocelot.
- While it's approaching, never jerk the camera or put a player's cross-hairs on the ocelot.
Ocelots will spawn during the day like passive mobs except this will only happen in jungle biomes at certain levels. They also have their own Spawn Egg in Creative Mode which is colored a dull yellow with blackish brownish spots.
- A chest can't be opened if a tamed ocelot is sitting on it.
- Ocelots can despawn.
- Ocelots are recognized as hostile mobs in the coding, and because of this players can't find them while on peaceful difficulty.
- Creepers will run away from ocelots and cats because they are scared of cats. Therefore, this is perhaps the greatest use that ocelots and cats have.
- Ocelots do not take fall damage, like Iron Golems and Magma Cubes.
- A tamed wolf (dog) will always go after an ocelot their owner attacked. Even if the wolf's owner manages to tame the ocelot (making it a cat) before the dog gets to it, the dog will still attack and kill it.
